    Well at least it's not Mythic who utterly failed for Warhammer Fantasy MMO.

    This must have been in works for ages and I really REALLY hope it turns out good. The concept of controlling multiple people in tight squads does sound awesome

    Hope they don't charge a monthly fee.

    :(

    wonder if they mean squad based like in star trek online. I found that a bit odd in the short time I played it. I guess it might be like pets in WoW only on a larger scale.

    It does sound interesting, WAR was bitterly dissapointing and STO seemed pretty poor too, the other MMO's I was looking at were stargate online(now been canned) and star wars the old repblic, which still seems to be the best placed MMO to challenge WoWs dominance of the MMO scene.

    I will follow the 40kMMO while it is in development, but I still believe that the star wars one will have the biggest impact, as starwars seems more "cooler" to play than warhammer.

    The fact that THQ is saying that this game is the "highest ranking revenue opportunity" that they have and not saying something like "Most amazing MMO of all time" or "A brilliantly innovative MMO revamp" should tell you something. They failed with the first WH miserably. If by the grace of God it turns out to be a worthwhile game then hey, I'm all for it, but I'm not going to hold my breath for this one.

    WAR wasn't that bad guys. The pvp was a lot of fun and the only problem questing was the ''getting stuck on a leaf'' bug.

    40K MMO is something I have been looking forward to for a long time. I hope they do it justice.

    Of course they will charge a monthly fee + regular expansion you will be forced to buy, why else do you think they would call it the biggest revenue opportunity if they would not plan to follow the classic money making strategy of most mmos.

    This will be some mental ****.

    i cant wait for black crusades, crusades and etc.. to be launched. I hope it is as large a universe as eve is right now, and that they get ccp in to help with fleet stuff.

    An MMO based on DoW2 kind of gameplay etc would be ****ing excellent. I might even have to break my rule and get it (an MMO) if it turns out good.

    If it doesn't look like it's going to suck too hard, I will at least try it before dismissing it as a dirty MMO.

    Really? Say that to the few hundred of us who worked for them, and lost our jobs due to the games abject failure.
